2006-2007 Girls' Basketball Adaptations

Adaptation # 1

Home uniforms shall be white in color and shall have even numbers. Away uniforms shall be a color other than white and shall have odd numbers.

Adaptation # 2

In addition to the numbers allowed by National Federation rule, the numbers 01, 02, 03, 04, and 05 are legal. The numbers 0 and 00 are considered as the even number alternative to 1 and 01. A team shall not use 0 and 00 etc in the same game.

Adaptation # 3 The lane spaces below the block shall remain open. The next lane space immediately above the block shall be occupied by an opponent of the free thrower. Only three lane spaces are available on each side of the lane. If the offensive team does not choose to fill the second space or the defensive team does not choose to fill the third space, the opposing team may legally occupy those spaces.

Adaptation # 4

The coach must remain in an area bounded by either end of the team bench at all Times during the game except for time outs, intermissions, being beckoned onto the floor by an official for an injury, or to confer with personnel at the scorer’s table.

When not seated on the bench, the coach shall be fully standing at all times. Kneeling is illegal and the violator shall be assessed with a direct technical foul. Only one coach is permitted off the bench at any one time.

If any member of the team bench, including the coach, receives a technical foul for unsportsmanlike conduct, this adaptation becomes invalid and the coach’s rule 10-5 of the National Federation Rule Book shall then apply.
